Goofs

While it is indeed true that FDR was wheelchair-bound by polio, he had perfected his ability to walk with the support of someone else's arm and could stand upright for a long period of time. He never appeared in public in a wheelchair, and in fact it was not even known outside his circle of associates that he was wheelchair-bound until after his death. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy: Ah, Jesus. I got a great high cooking here, don't bring me down.
Jesus: On the contrary, Jimmy. I'm here to bring you UP - with dope. No, not your brand of dope, but the straight dope! You think hanging with those reefer fiends are cool? I don't think you realize how cool God can be.

Excellent movie
16 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Just saw Reefer Madness tonight on Showtime and it was fantastic. I thought the score is very relevant to the politics that are going on currently and were right on target. It was interesting to hear the lyrics commenting on the political "spin" that seems to be very relevant to both political parties. Also the targeting "fear" instead of actual problems is very representative of today's political climate.

The cast was great too, especially Christian Campbell who is very talented and very good looking as well - he should be in more! I also enjoyed Steven Weber and Alan Cumming who have always been favorites of mine.
